SALISBURY, Md. – As of tonight, the city of Salisbury’s 2020 budget has officially been approved and adopted. Mayor Jake Day rolled out his plan for the budget back in April and after a couple of work sessions and reviewing the budget, the council gave it the green light. Day tells us for the third year in a row there are no tax, sewer, or water increases in the budget. He adds that the $62.3 million budget will continue to ensure the city remains a positive place to live, while also bettering the quality of life for each and every resident.

“We’ll be continuing our increased paving efforts, infrastructure efforts around the city and all of our youth programming. We’re really pretty happy about it and proud that we are able to do all of that without increasing expenses for people,” Day said.

Day adds that the 2020 budget will go into effect on July 1st.
